Gutters, along with a high-quality gutter protection system, perform an important role in keeping your home safe from water damage. This is why it’s important to take your time when deciding which style of gutter to install.

The two most popular options are half-round and K-style gutters, both of which offer unique advantages. Read on as we discuss half-round and K-style gutters to help you decide which style would best suit your needs.

K-Style Gutters

Classic colonial homes are often adorned with intricate trims and moldings. K-style gutters complement this aesthetic without sacrificing functionality. K-style gutters are flat on one side, which means they can be installed on the fascia easily. Their capacity is determined by their size, so talk to your gutter contractor about how to properly size your gutters to maximize their efficiency.

Half-Round Gutters

Half-round gutters are commonly installed on homes with rounded roof lines or metal roofing. Homeowners who wish to preserve the looks of their historic homes often choose half-round gutters for their roofs. Installing half-round gutters is more complicated than K-style gutters because they require brackets to be installed before the troughs are put in place.

Which Should You Choose?

Which style of gutters is best? The truth is that both perform about the same when installed properly. The main difference between the two is aesthetic.
